What Is Live Baccarat

Table players have most probably enjoyed a game of baccarat online from time to time, but with the introduction of live baccarat, NZ players can now take a seat with live baccarat dealers and play in real time.


  • Live baccarat is a popular casino card game where players place bets on one of three outcomes. The dealer then deals two cards to the player and the banker, and the hand closest to 9 wins.
  • Baccarat tables typically have a limit of 7 seats, which can result in waiting for a seat at traditional casinos.
  • Spin Casino still offers 7 seat baccarat live, but there’s a variety of other live dealer baccarat tables to choose from, so you’ll always find a seat at a table hosted by a professional dealer.
  • The live baccarat tables are enhanced by a player-friendly interface and a moderated live chat room, allowing for sociable gaming from the comfort of home.
  • Spin Casino offers a convenient and secure platform for live baccarat NZ players.

Rules Of Live Baccarat

  • In live dealer baccarat games, there are two hands: the player and the banker.
  • Bets can be placed on either hand to win, or a tie bet can be placed.
  • The winning hand is the one with the score closest to 9 points.
  • In online baccarat live dealer games, cards 2 through 9 have their face value, Aces are worth 1 point, and 10s and royal cards are worth 0.
  • If a hand's score is greater than 9, the 10-unit is ignored, so a score of 13 is read as 3.
  • After the betting closes, the dealer deals two cards to each hand.
  • Players cannot make decisions on moves when playing live baccarat; the dealer plays out moves based on initial scores and game rules.
  • After playing out any moves, the dealer reveals the results.

Live Baccarat Strategies And Tips

As with many of our online casino games, there are certain strategies and tips you can apply when you play baccarat online live.


  • When playing live dealer baccarat, strategy cannot influence the outcomes, but you can use tips to improve your game.
  • The banker bet has better winning chances than the player and tie bets, with the player bet having the next-best odds of winning.
  • Use previous game results to inform your betting decisions, accessing the Big, Big Eye, Small, Cockroach, and Bead roads for pictorial representations of game outcomes.

  • The player bet has a 44.62% chance of winning and a 1.24% house edge, with a 1:1 payout.
  • The tie bet has steep odds of winning at 9.52% and a high house edge at 14.36%, but it pays 8:1 if the hands tie.
